One Dungeon

by Drkr - Jam Entry

Fight as a knight, solve puzzles as a wizard and journey into a dungeon.

W A S D - To move
Space - To switch characters
Left Click - Attack / Interact
-----------------------------------------------------------
A knight and wizard venture off to defeat a mysterious gigantic monster deep in a local dungeon down the road. The knight, only competent with a blade, sought out a great wizard to guide him through his greatest weakest: Doors. Being a graduate of West Magicplace University, majoring in Switches & Door Wizardry, the wizard enthusiastically joined the knight on his quest.

Fun game! I like it whenever you switch character the music changes while the Knight's music is "creepy-ish" and the Wizard's music is happy and cheerful.

Knight: down to one health fighting the boss
Wizard: (cheeful music plays outside)

Very fun and funny game!

It was a bit confusing, I found myself being annoyed trying to figure out which switch to trip to open a door. Still, interesting concept!

The drastic change between the knight and wizards music is wonderfully funny, and the idea of using the two different characters to bypass doors and enemies is surprisingly fun.

And Jim the budget snail was an adorable bossfight. :)

I'd say that the sword attack felt pretty clunky and unsatisfying, but not so clunky that it stops the game from being rather fun, nice work.

I liked the music when u switched between the two characters, i wanted to play till the end, but since i died once, i didnt want to go through all the effort again XD

That music transition got me. The combat felt a little slow but other than a good game.

Cool mechanic. Could've done with more feedback to beef up the combat such as screen shake and screen flashes, etc.

Nice entry. I liked switching to solve the puzzles. I wasn't able to make it to the boss (i died on the second time with all the bats at the bottom of the room) and it was too much grind to go through the entire game again. Still very nicely done.

The ending 1000/10, the mage was totally useless, just like in every rpg game :D

The juxtaposition of the two theme songs was pretty fun. Also, I like how the wizard can twirl in circles with the mouse while he walks, a veritable ballerina wizard! Well done.

Wizard seems like a pretty chill dude.
Now I'm gonna go vote, as requested ;)

The music switching totally makes it! I wish there was dialog between the characters to enhance that, but just the music alone gives them so much personality. Nice one!
